Toto, hide the video games...
Will Kansas join the growing list of states with game legislation in 2006? It seems likely, based on comments made last night by Governor Kathleen Sebelius during her State of the State address to assembled legislators.
Sebelius, a Democrat, made the following comments in relation to games during her address. Her words appear to signal upcoming legislation:
"Parents today face new challenges that we didn't have when our children were younger. Video games and music lyrics promote violence... Moms and dads shouldn't be alone in their fight to raise children the right way. They shouldn't be alone in their fight to instill the values that lead to a life of meaning, rather than a life wasted. We can help parents by giving them access to tools... and limits on access to violent video games. In the coming days, I will make these tools available to parents across Kansas."
